Halloween is one of the most neighborly holidays of the year, when little ghouls and goblins head out to trick-or-treat in neighborhoods across America. For the second year in a row, we’ve analyzed data from neighborhoods that use the platform’s annual Treat Map feature to find the best cities for treats in the country. Did your city make the list?
Starting on October 3rd, neighbors can use the Treat Map to let each other know they will be passing out candy by marking their home on their neighborhood’s Treat Map with a candy corn icon. Parents and trick-or-treaters alike can use the map all month long to plan a safe, fun Halloween – and plan the best route to go trick-or-treating through the neighborhood to ensure a full bag of candy by the end of the night!
And did you know? Neighbors can also mark a haunted house icon on the Treat Map, indicating that kids can stop by for a terrifying trip through a neighbor’s haunted house.
Join in on the fun and check out your neighborhood’s Treat Map at nextdoor.com/treat starting Monday, October 3rd!
The above list was curated based on the ratio of the number of Nextdoor members who indicated they were passing out candy on Nextdoor’s Treat Map in 2015 to the total Nextdoor members in a city. Data was analyzed in U.S. cities where more than 5,000 residents are signed up for Nextdoor, and includes the city with the highest ratio from each state, up to 10 states. The list includes Downers Grove, IL; Edmond, OK; Midland, TX; Wake Forest, NC; Parker, CO; Brentwood, TN; Dublin, CA; Madison, WI; St. Louis Park, MN; Silver Spring, MD.
